is utterly dismissing mr. romney. romney's foreign policy mouthpiece was challenged by andrea mitchell to defend his somewhat hawkish posture towards iran. take a listen, dana. >> is governor romney really prepared to go to war with iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> dana, i'm sorry, so romney doesn't advocate military action, but the president is weak for not advocating military action. how does that one work? >> let me explain it that way, the position romney is taking on any foreign policy issue is he disagrees with president obama regardless of president obama's position on this. afghanistan. he disagrees with it. what would he do differently? >> nothing. >> we don't know. he disagrees with the position on iran, on israel. what would he do differently? nothing, because the united states are at the mercy of events unless he is going to reinstate the neocon advisers. >> 17 of the 24 advised president bush. >> and we saw what th
, presidential. now, when mitt romney was speaking about foreign policy on the same day, he was wildly lashes out in every direction. look at this contrast. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> lashing out in all directions. the president didn't call syria because he didn't do anything. he's at fault in iran for not doing something. he's at fault in egypt for doing something. hey, mitt, what's your great idea for all those countries should we have supported mubarak or freedom and democracy there. you've got no answers. all you have is vitriol against the president. he's not alone among conservatives. eric bowling on fox news channel, get a load of his idea on foreign policy. >> $23 billion we've given pakistan since 9/11. maybe it's time to cut off the aid and send a drone. >> maybe invade their embass and do some bomb
in massachusetts when he was governor, clearly romney's policies benefit the rich. i understand the frustration with the economy and not being as optimistic about the economy and being angry and wanting to blame the president. but the alternative is worse for the middle class when they look at the actual numbers. megyn: politico reports 54% of the total american electorate is the middle class -- usually their vote is split count middle. not this time around. >> maybe they are actually listen together results from massachusetts where he took the state from an expected large deficit to a surplus where he encouraged job growth in the way government should by getting out of the way. the fact is when the president says we are going to put more people to work on infrastructure we know how that translates. we'll borrow money from china and hire people for short-term jobs that don't lead to something that's long term. even middle class voters are saying this does not give us a long-term win. exactly two weeks after four americans were brutally murdered in libya we'll speak with someone who served with
delivering key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. ing in fact, mr. romney is about to speak in minutes. governor romney spent yesterday attacking mr. obama for international crises from the killing of americans in libya to the anti-american uprising in much of the muslim world. is this missile test a new talking point? the former chief speechwriter for george w. bush and his defense secretary donald rumsfeld. he joins us from the american enterprise institute in wash where he writes on foreign policy and defense issues. good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm good. thank you so much for joining us. this is a chance for mr. romney to look presidential at a time when polls show strong support for mr. obama's foreign policy is slipping. you are a former speechwriter. what does governor romney need to say today? >> well, it is interesting because president obama -- just a few weeks ago president obama was boasting about his foreign policy achievements and mocking mitt romney for how little foreign policy experience he has. it is a difference what a couple of weeks makes. as you
this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has been a lot of consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good move? >> well, look, first of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the road he gave his political opponents ammunition. i don't think there's going to be a long-term effect. the issues raised this week about he should have met with netanya netanyahu, other world leaders, there's some political vulnerability and republicans are probably correct to pick up on that. i think the most significant thing about the noise that's being made about all this is that i think we have eight or ten polls now that have shown on the question of the economy, which was supposed to be the element of the romney campaign, vote
assistant secretary of state for public affairs and ambassador richard williams, mitt romney's senior foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then d
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama sparring yesterday, that is how the headlines played. nicholas burns will be coming to us live from boston to take your calls. the former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the bush administration. the speech that we were referring to comes up at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. this will be at the un general assembly. we will stay with several other peaches -- speeches throughout the morning. ronald, good morning. caller: good morning, c-span. lots of republicans call in without looking at all the facts. i do not agree with obama's policies, i am a democrat, but i do agree with the fact that he is making a change, a definite change. mitt romney is not the candidate to be the next president. if he does, this country will turn into what he wants it to turn into, and that would be a business. which is not what this country is. thank you. host: more reaction to the speeches this morning from the editorial page of "the wall street journal." they have this headline, quoting the iranian president -- host: reaction from "the new york tim
is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver. jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do talking about economy and jobs? instead it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> reporter: right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although, romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on. they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made to "60 minutes," when he said recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house said the president was talking broadly about events
policy front and center at this point in the campaign. >> i thought it was good mitt romney went there, cracked a couple of good jokes, and you have to say, look at the overall position in this election, it seems extraordinary to me that the polls seem to be widening. when you have a country that's 8.2% unemployment, $16 trillion in debt, gas prices doubling, all of the huge sticks to beat the incumbent president with. and you look at it, mitt romney has to win, the lead stretched to an eight-point lead. why is this happening? why is mitt romney not able to persuade the public, despite the devastating statistics against barack obama's tenure? he's apparently rolling away to victory in places like ohio? >> is that for me, piers? >> yes, richard. >> thank you. first there, are ebbs and flows. jimmy carter was far ahead in his election against ronald reagan, where he was beaten decessively. i think polls would show them statistically tied, tough fights in certain swing states. what governor romney is trying to do is point out the fundamental differences between his faith ain the private s
foreign policy speech in next couple weeks. details on that forthcoming. which illustrates on romney and paul ryan's campaign which was thought focused on the jobs and economy has been forced into a broadened portfolio to include foreign policy and international affairs. it turned out to be fortuitous. there was a lot of speculation that mitt romney's relative inexperience one-term governor of massachusetts up against a commander-in-chief that claimed to kill bin laden would be a real liability. we've seen in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr. romney to take more offensive approach on foreign policy and go up against the president to suggest he has not been a strong leader. bill: carl we'll be back to you in a moment. as soon as we see governor romney
policy speech to again outline his criticisms of the president. romney's argument has been obama leadership worldwide has weakened the stature of the united states and has made it more difficult for us to hold our adversaries at bay and put us in adversarial position with a lot of our allies. most notably mitt romney can't go a foreign policy speech once without saying in his view the obama administration has thrown israel under the bus. he has specifically been playing to his relationship with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. they have known each other for almost 30 years when mitt romney took his overseas trip he spent a lot of time with netanyahu and referred to each other by first names and very informal and on brightly spotlighted international stage. romney believes he will strengthen u.s. alliances with israel and that is absolutely necessary and he suggested mr. obama too often has been disrespectful and given the cold shoulder to the jewish state that becomes emblem attic of all of that that is not what the clinton cgi speech is all about. republicans for d
. >> governor romney's speech at the clinton global initiative had a narror focu ren ai proposing a new policy for overseas contributions. >> the aim of a much larger share of our aid must be the promotion of work and the fostering of free enterprise. nothing we can do a a nation ceesat more effectively and permanently than sharing the insight that lies at the foundation of america's own economy. and that is that free people pursuing happiness in their own ways, build a stron and vedut a new approach for a new era. >> governor ed rendell, two candidates both playing the role of statesman at the same time in the same city or ratively the same time in theame city. president oba, obviously, had the heavier ftsctuay the president and the commander in chief and the events in the middle east has increased the load in terms of what he must demonstrate to the rest of the world. what did you make of his addre to the u.n. general assembly? did he effectively make the case for americ did he effectively outline aie nat hadick atwoli to alawe america and the middle east? >> i thought you saw both men at th
foreign policy the best? obama, 49%. romney, 46%. margaret? go ahead. >> absolutely. this is a strong suit for president obama, but we have also seen the numbers soften in the past few weeks, especially since the attacks on our embassy abroad on september 11th. this goes to a point of where is the american leadership? no actionable response that the american ambassador was killed in an embassy abroad. >> i think we have done a lot of things but i think the most interesting thing about yesterday is looking at the two of them, i was there at the clinton global initiative where they spoke a couple hours apart. and i thought romney was terrif terrific. >> we'll play that and then we'll talk about it. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terror attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we are at the mercy of eve
on foreign policy against romney, and he doesn't really draw more attention to all the unrest in the middle east that's going on right now, but, you know, pairing his visit with going on "the view" obviously was really bad optics. the campaign is sort of trying to backtrack that, saying it was a scheduling matter, both events were in new york, so he tried to be efficient with his time. it's sort of just a lose-lose situation for him. if he had met with the leaders, he would have drawn more attention to the problems in the middle east. >> greta: he could have done both. he could have gone on "the view" and met with world leaders, right, steve? >> yeah. >> greta: i mean, he could have done both. >> it's inconceivable that he didn't meet with world leaders, that he didn't change his schedule to meet with bibi netanyahu. if you believe the rhetoric coming out of the white house and the state department they buy the way that the israelis define the threat. they sort of want to believe the urgency. yet the president won't meet with netanyahu on -- potentially on the verge of a war, in an effort t

lou: cover romney in new york today give a very good speech before the clinton initiative, but it was one that, frankly, was somewhat discordant because it was not relevant to the foreign policy issues being discussed by the leader of the free world and the commander in chief. what is your reaction? >> i think that mitt romney is in a position to win this presidential race. i think it is very important that he stop acting like a candidate and start acting like the president of the united states. what i would have had him do today is be meeting with these four leaders as the president refused to do and give that differentiation between the president of the united states sitting there on a talk show talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid

's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where
? caller: yes. i plan to vote for mitt romney. host: because of foreign policy issues or economic/domestic issues? caller: both. host: now to a democratic caller in pennsylvania, don. caller: the u.n. has failed is rail many times. one time when egypt threatened to close the strait and the war against the egyptians started. they failed israel miserably in the north at the southern part of a non. southern part of lebanon. they promised that has a law would not be allowed to re-arm. -- hezbollah would not be allowed to re-arm. on august 10 of 2012 in the inquiry there was an article called "terrorism and palestinian statehood," . read.people should " hos and this on twitter -- the washington times has this headline -- calling for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption

of ideological divergence between romney and obama. those are the two critical issues here. on foreign policy generally the president has had an advantage. somewhat unusual for a democrat. seen more capable handling foreign policy. his job approval have been better than ratings on domestic policy. but with netanyahu raising the question -- with the differences being made so visible by netanyahu's own visibility, the question for jewish support in a couple places that could matter. it's not inconceivable given the arguments from the israeli prime minister. >> they're not going to meet face-to-face. they're both obviously here in the united states. but there will be a phone call tomorrow. what's the political fallout from this decision that someone made that the president should not get together with netanyahu during these final weeks of this election? >> well, look, relationships are fraught between president obama and netanyahu as they were between clinton and netanyahu. netanyahu and his view of the world and what it takes to make israel secure is closer to a neocon republican view of what i
